    Looking at foundation tier. Very difficult to judge. Pupils who could get a 4 on higher but risk getting a U. If you put them in for foundation they seem to get a 3.

    Where you might think a diff task would be appropriate is the speak g exam. But it's basically the same at H and F.

    F writi g is bizarre. More tasks to do, and more "closed" tasks where off you don't know a word you can't score.

    L and R. The odd literary texts are in the F tier. On F tier you need to do very well to get a 5 or even a 4. If you were getting that many marks, you'd be doi g higher.

    I agree with this but remember in writing tasks it is possible at foundation tier to sometimes get away with saying j'adore before a word you don't know

    Meant to add that I re-read the entire thread from start to finish- had forgotten some of the posts but it was entertaining and very time consuming!!

    Made me remember the days when I'd check tes forums every day and the longevity of this thread kept my interest going. I suppose that it's a little sad that it gave me such pleasure to re-visit it
